Chistmas Tree topper, item DO-ShEx-003
For those who want something REALLY different on their tree!
This tree topper started out as regular 2-1/8 inch round glass Christmas ornament to which a spire was added and then was covered with a multicolored rope of polymer clay which was then shaved, smoothed, sanded, and polished.
The opening at the bottom extends approximately 1 1/4 inches into the ornament to allow you to slide it on the top of your tree.
As the glass is covered by a thin layer of polymer clay, the ornament is much stronger than regular glass ornaments. However, this ornament still needs to be handled with care so that the 'core' ornament does not break.
